HC-1 Helicopter for #MilitaryMonday

The Kaman “Seasprite” UH-2 was used for Search and Rescue (SAR) aboard the USS BonHomme Richard (CVA-31).

I was an avionics technician assigned to HC-1 Det 3 out of Ream Field, Imperial Beach, CA. We deployed for Vietnam in 1970.

  1. My father flew on a UH-2 off the Bonnie Dick until he was shot down and medically retired in 1969. It's good to see a quality picture of the Kaman bird. It brings back a lot of memories told to me time and again by my pops about the good and bad times they had.
